  1. Wow its so cold here I know Ed has us down for -0 degrees but both weather forecasts I look at have us down at -0.4 so I gather everyone is too cold to get out of bed this morning. And rightly so, I was awoken by the neighbour revving his car engine at some unearthly hour and have not been back to sleep unfortunately.
    Hope we do not have to stop turning our jugs on and heat pumps off etc during this cold spell!!!!! All those electric cars are as useless as tits on bulls at the moment and I can imagine their owners are not going a long distance this morning or anytime over the weekend, as their batteries are not charged enough… such a shame for them///////
    Anyway have a great day and keep safe.

  2. And a very Good morning to you Lizzie. As I type this It’s 1 Degree out here in the Central Waikato, and the heater is doing it’s valiant best to warm the room. There’s no frost *Yet although that may change at sunrise,) and supposedly it’s going to be a fine day.

    It would seem however that someone else has been ‘lurking’ since your made your post, and that ‘The Phantom ‘Down-ticker’ took umbrage at your comments about ‘things electric’, but despite that , have a great day, and DLTBGYD.

    • Kudos to her. She’s probably saving us a packet.
      If she lived anywhere else she could be paying $600-700pw to rent a flat.
      She’s put her boys in a permanent home costing under $300pw
      I’m delighted the taxpayer is saving the rest on accommodation supplement.
      She has a plan to return to work, and her lower living costs will not tie her to a benefit.
      She’ll never get rich on capital gains in a hole like Dannevirke, but I congratulate her on her forward thinking.

      • yea i agree itll likely be cheaper but should a winz accom supplement really be used like that?

        i doubt she has real ambition to return to work, she spawned another child while unable to support herself and her 1st born so id wager that she spawns at least 1 more, possibly 2 that will conveniently be born just prior to her youngest reaching an age where she can return to work.

        • Do you ever get over being nasty. What a fucking sad attitude you have. That lady has raised herself up and good on her. There’s plenty of others you could criticise yet you criticise someone who has pushed to get where and what she has. How many hand ups have you ever given, because that’s what people often need.

          • Okay, to a degree one has to agree but look at a few facts that SB pointed out.
            1. Second child.
            2. Not one mention of a father.
            3. “She had an income of about $46,000 a year” That is a direct payment by the people of New Zealand.
            4. “She was able to prove to the bank her income was stable” Wow – Yes, I have every intention on remaining just as I am as far as permanent working income is concerned.
            5. “With a background in motor mechanics, Donaldson supplemented her income buying and selling cars, a hobby she got approval for from Work and Income.” So quite to prepared to work a money making job – just as long as it doesn’t affect her permanent income benefit.

            Whilst I, like you Viking, applaud her for what she has achieved isn’t this just the epitome of the current acceptance and an almost encouragement of people tp go onto and remain on a tax paid benefit on a long term never ending period of time.

              • Depends on what you are consulting on,
                Look at the hundreds of labor party members on the working partys, how many of them were even coherent, all labor wanted was them to tithe. Did anyone ever as as to the makeup?

            • Need to be careful with her new “hobby” can only sell 10 cars a year before you can be classed as a car dealer.
              While she has done a good thing in getting a house, she put her self in that position.
              I know lots of solo mums and 99% cant feel sorry for as it was their choice, how ever when they are getting benes and a house, $500 per week house costing them $50 per week, it pisses me off that we have to pay for them.

          • If we are going to support single parents I’d rather it was those with a bit of gumption like this woman. She at least has a game plan to support herself & her brood rather than go through life on her back with her legs in the air waiting for another sperm donor to keep her on the DPB.

            So a guarded “good on you” from me.

        • It says she was working when both the children were born, so not on a benefit.
          You are also assuming that because she is single now she was single then.
          We are not given that information, but I wonder who was caring for the babies while she ploughed ahead?
          Granted, the article is from Stuff so scepticism is warranted, but on the face of it Hayley Donaldson has my admiration.

          And:
          Viking – play the ball, not the man.

    • It is a $tuffed fluff piece so we will never know the truth
      It will be well embellished.

      If family are in Levin and she bought in no name Dannevirke there will be no support system for her.
      Is there any support from the father/fathers ?
      2 kids in 2 years sounds like a lot of cock up !!
      Did family chip in money to get her out of their hair?
      Why did her job end when the second kid was 5 months old and possibly 2 under 2 . MMmmm?

      If she left school at 18 – a full term secondary education -why has the last 5 years years been about breeding… but all the talk is how hard she works.

      yep yep,
      we just don’t know the real story
      ..but it will not be what the churnalists scribble.

      I applaud someone who pulls themselves out of adversity;
      but as we know the biased crap from NZ media would never applaud such a person;
      they would put them down with a poison pen.

      • Try walking in other peoples shoes for a while.

        I can’t understand the criticising attitude about someone who has pulled herself up and got on with a life in meaningful way.

        Like someone pointed out we have no idea what her life is about and to her credit their doesn’t appear to be any gang associations.
        Anyway whats wrong with Dannevirle. Its a Vking Norse town. Full of good fellas.

          but
          We dont know what the truth is with $tuffed.

          Definitely, what they print is not what the truth is.
          you know that, Riiiight??

          It is a crap shoot as to what the real story is
          YOU don’t know.

        • vikey, what part of recieving 46k per year and getting taxpayers to repay her mortage is pulling herself up and getting on with life in a meaningful way?
          we’re propping her up so she can continue her existence and bludging ways.

  3. Returned to Waimate from Te Anau vis the Lindis Pass route yesterday. Of interest we were there 11 May last year and it snowed a lot heavier around all that area then than it did this year a couple of days ago in the same southerly snap that now appears to have emptied our electricity reserves. We also appear to have had more and heavier frosts here than we had during the whole of last winter.
    In 2021 we travelled for 80 days around the North Island and both coasts of the upper South Island. During that time we only saw 3 police cars on the roads we were travelling – not counting any within city areas we were in. This trip we saw 3 on our way south and 5 on the trip yesterday. On both days 1 was a mufti who had stopped someone .

  4. Okay so who noticed this.?
    “Grammy-winning rapper Macklemore has expressed solidarity with anti-Israel protesters and condemned Israel’s military campaign against Hamas terrorists, choosing a sellout crowd in New Zealand’s capital, Wellington, to deliver his pro-Palestinian views.”
    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2024/05/09/macklemore-performs-pro-hamas-anti-biden-song-at-new-zealand-concert/

    So who has heard of him? Was it reported anywhere on MSM in New Zealand.?
    “The audience reportedly raised their hands as Macklemore, real name Benjamin Hammond Haggerty, sang and multiple fans waved keffiyeh – the black and white scarf linked with anti-Israel supporters.”

    Wellington, the Capital of New Zealand, full of left leaning and Greenie supporting Government workers who continue to stand against the wishes of mainstream New Zealanders. Interestingly though yesterday when coming home I noticed someone had carefully painted a large size Palestinian flag on a corrugated iron fence, could have been Mossburn I think, which quite surprised me at the time. How much support is there in New Zealand.

      They can then reclaim the stolen jewels.

      I loved the joke last night on HYS about the wrecking of the British car industry.
      That was a real sledge to a mob that wrecked their own feeble ‘industry’ more than half a century ago.
      But why do we still have stupid regular WOF today ….because of that daft legacy ?

  5. The Notice of Liability Delivered to Individuals at the WHO
    Addressing both corporate and personal liability in wrongdoing

    By your unilateral recommendation of harmful Covid strategies, The People, represented by the World Council for Health, do not believe that you acted in accordance with your constitutional obligations in Article 1. If your actions are found to be in contravention of Article 1, you will not be covered by Article 67 of the WHO Constitution that provides for the stated protection and immunity. In other words, you may be personally liable for the millions of deaths and immense suffering caused on account of your role in the unlawful authorisation of these harmful recommendations. Moreover, given the blatant conflicts of interest evident in the WHO’s activities, closely connected to commercial interests, immunity is not guaranteed when acting at the behest of those interests.

  6. This crackling excitement behind an antiwar protest movement hasn’t happened since the sixties, and the empire had to retreat from Vietnam with its tail between its legs and dramatically restructure western civilization before it could recover from it. And all the empire managers who worked on solving that problem are dead and gone now; the people working on it now have never had to deal with anything like this, which is why it took them by surprise. The empire managers of today have only ever encountered protests against the war machine that were either very small or short-lived and easily diverted; this one’s only gaining momentum seven months in.

    • So they get worked up about that but not the more than 2 year one that USA has been waging against Russia.

      Ooops I had bedder say ‘Ukraine is defending against the Russian invasion’ or Hate Hannah might write me a sternly worded email.

      The broken down sniffy creep and crook, Biden, has got his two wars in the first term. Just like GW Bush and B Hussein Obama.
      Damn that Trump for not putting in the effort. The war machine was all there ready to go.

          • rol :— Seems that one has to read behind the lines. 🙂

            …….. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky claimed on Friday that Russian forces have launched ……..
            ….. development was first announced by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry …….
            … claims were further amplified by Vladimir Zelensky, …
            ……. we knew this and calculated everything,” Zelensky said during a news conference, ….

            This will help Ukrainian morale & mobilisation.

            Plus it has been blogged on that Poland has already arrested a few Ukrainian able bodied men to send back, transfer to Ukrainian military corps.

            Yep, soon as this conflict is decided concisely then better for all the troops.
            Then will the the truth been shown about what happened, like the disregard of the Minsk accords by the NATO countries.
            Will they see the propaganda of how President Zelenskyy, NATO, etc.. & how they have all been played, likes as mentioned below by Military Summary.

        • The question is did Russia really launch a surprise attack onto Ukrainian soil from the northern boundary.
          Geo locations are not adding up for what the Ukraine has claimed. !

          That $400 million dollars is a good reward.

          26 mins : 11 May 7:30 am : Military Summary :

          Set to start at the why it may be a black flag attack
          “The 3rd camp” though from the start will give the full context.
          https://youtu.be/Z6KHZtb4b0Q?t=474
          Which starts at 7 mins 54 secs
          The “3 camps” finish at 13 mins 15 secs :

          Still one may not be surprized that the Russians will attack from this position, in some near future time.
          But this “3rd camp” shows how much fight the Ukrainians have in stopping Russia, & taking back the land. Ukraine only needs a bit more money.

          As mentioned by Military Summary that even the pro-Russian bloggers are tagging that attack as only coming from Ukrainian sources.

          Plus a way of boosting Ukrainian troops morale in that they have pushed the Russians back.
          To aid

          Russia has sheer number of troops, equipment, ammo etc..
          Ukraine is has problems in lack of manpower, and equipment.
          In the meantime NATO, namely USA, Britain, France. Germany play the game of support & above all to have No Negotiations.

    • 5 eyes control plus being Western World concepts that supports Environment Social, Governance ESG with Diversity, Equity, Inclusion.
      That brings on the certain “privileges” to see oppression, colonialist, feminism, genderism, etc..

      More isolated, easier to control, with the traitors in our midst like Ardern in with the sell out of Britain by PM Tony Blair.
      Many WEF connections, including traitorous influencers.

      Lack of a constitution like how the USA one, that though challenged, has stood the test of time.

Word is the US Alphabet agencies requested help from Aus and NZ to smooth the way in shutting down free speech sites such as ‘X’ and Rumble so the US can ban free speech before the November election.

  7. The (Zionist controlled) mainstream media is ramping up the fear of bird flu. It’s saying that more avian influenza cases in humans are likely to occur. The “highly contagious” bird flu strain is, (due to false testing), infecting mammals all over the U.S., and it is probably only a matter of time before humans can transmit the virus to each other.

    • Julian the Apostate, Roman Emperor, tried to rebuild the Third Temple. Syrian, Roman, Jewish and Christian historians record similarly strange events at the attempt. Flames, madness, earthquakes. No temple was built, Julian died soon after from illness, quite young. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

  8. A cut and paste of a post on BFD

    “This has got to stop, now. Six months after the election and the DIA still has 427 people on the payroll doing 3 waters stuff in the office. They cannot be serious, sack the lot of them today and get them to clean out their desks Monday. Unbelievable. ”

    Even if they are on contracts, pay them off or put them into alternative work —labourers to help the contractors fix the leaking water pipe leaks in Wellington would be a good start. At least it would piss them off quickly and they would take off, making paying them out of their contracts unnecessary.

  9. So wet tickets are still available in NZ courts.

    A getaway driver found with jewellery stuffed in her bra, price tags still attached, in the immediate aftermath of a violent $250,000 smash-and-grab has been sentenced to home detention.

    Papakura resident Marcieanne Nimot, 37, was by far the oldest of the five alleged offenders – the others all teens, two of whom were minors – during the November 2022 heist, which was caught on video.

    Defence lawyer Steven Lack that despite Nimot’s age she was the least culpable of the group, having known that a theft was about to take place at Ellerslie Jewellers and Engravers, but not realising the damage and violence that was about to occur. Unlike the others, she is not alleged to have gone into the jewellery store or confronted bystanders.

    An aurora australis danced across Aotearoa’s skies this morning to the delight of photographers nationwide.

    Strong geomagnetic activity combined with cloudless skies made for perfect viewing of the cosmic event, which is difficult to see with the naked eye but is enhanced when viewed through cameras.

    MetService meteorologist Clare O’Connor said the event was an uncommon sight for New Zealanders, but more so for those in the far north.

  11. New Zealand transport
    8 May 2024
    Bulk of earthworks complete for Manawatū – Hawke’s Bay highway
    8:17 pm on 8 May 2024

    The major earthworks are finished and the pavement will soon be laid on a vital transport link between Manawatū and Hawke’s Bay, scheduled to open in about a year.

    It is seven years since the old State Highway 3 through the Manawatū Gorge closed due to slips, sending traffic instead to winding, narrow alternative routes.

    The $620 million highway springing up in its place has changed the face of lower reaches of the Ruahine Range as it climbs over the hills and snakes through wind turbines between Ashhurst, on the Palmerston North side, and Woodville.

    • ……”It is seven years since the old State Highway 3 through the Manawatū Gorge closed due to slips, sending traffic instead to winding, narrow alternative routes.’…….

      Seven long years of climbing over the Saddle Road on the odd occasions that it’s not closed for makeshift, shoddy repairs. Seven long years of waiting while the bumbling fools who designed the new road buggered around. Seven long years while the construction firm led an orgy of gross masturbation instead of building the bloody thing. Seven long years to create just 11.5 kilometres of road in average NZ terrain.

      Seven more months before they start on their excuses of why it won’t be completed on time.

      Hooray, fuck.

      • Christ you are a whinger.

        Of course in your day it would have been done in no time. Just like the old road that was made for the 10 tonners you used to drive. and done with poorly paid labourers.
        Like most of our old roads, the truckers fucked them by wanting bigger and better trucks. Soon be 60 tonnes and that requires a lot more pavement construction than your old bangers. Anyway truckers have never paid their share for the road damage.

        The old one was built on an earthquake fault anyway.
        Try crying somewhere else if you want smpathy.
